Ed posted an image of his beloved cats and now wife on his Instagram this Valentine’s Day, captioned ‘All my gals’.

A source close to Ed told The Sun: “Ed got married a few days before Christmas. It was very quiet – just Ed’s oldest school pals, limited family and the priest.

“There were only 40 people – so no Taylor Swift, record company executives or any royals or pop star pals. He wanted no fuss and he wanted it to be something entirely for them – just a tiny winter wedding.

“Neither of them were that fussed about making a big deal about it. Cherry just wanted to get it out of the way without any problems or intrusions.”

The superstar hosted the ceremony at his Suffolk mansion just before Christmas.

The intention was to have a Saxon-style wedding chapel built on site, however, these plans were rejected by Suffolk Coastal District Council in June last year on the grounds that the build would cause “the impression of a second village church”.

Another source told The Daily Mail that Ed and Cherry plan to throw a big festival-style wedding in the summer with their celebrity and royal friends who were not invited to the wedding.

We’ve all been left guessing whether Ed had married Cherry since the Grammy winner was spotted leaving the BRIT Awards with a ring on his wedding finger. Ed later told The Sun that the ring was an engagement ring Cherry had given him.

The singer has always tried and succeeded in keeping his private life out of the public eye. Ed told an Australian radio station last March: “We were both kind of wearing rings. It also means that nobody will know when we have got married.”

Meanwhile, Ed’s father John added to the mystery during an interview with MailOnline where he was asked to comment. John replied: “I’m very sorry, I can’t say anything. We try and keep as anonymous as possible for obvious reasons. I do apologise, but I just don’t give interviews on anything like that.

“I am not going to comment because we really do want to be as private as possible. I am sorry. I know you have got a job to do – but I haven’t seen it. I am not really into all that stuff. Sorry about that.”
